Pink and white mixed flower wedding bouquet

Soft pink and white bridal bouquet

On of the nicest part of any wedding florist’s days is meeting with the bridal couple the week before the wedding to finalise their choice of flowers.  Often the wedding flowers have been months in the planning with the lots emails and discussions between the bride and her florist.  And as the big day approaches, the final decision about flowers has to be made.  Where a mixture of different types of flowers are being used, this will  be very dependent on what is available at the markets.

I always meet with my brides the week before to tell them what is available and what flower choices are available.  For instance, with my bride this morning I was able to share the news that Sydney flower suppliers are importing peonies and so we will be able to use pale pink peonies in her bouquet.  Sweetpeas have also come into season so we can use those for her bridesmaids who are having an all pink mixed flower bouquet.

My bride has decided on a bouquet similar to the above with white hydrangea, lisianthus and pale pink peonies.

Next week I will post a photo of the bouquet that we made for our bride.

Trail Bouquet David Austin roses

Fall bouquet with david austin roses and orchids

Teardrop bouquet with roses and orchids

This must be one of my favourite wedding bouquets of all times.  What was really special about this particular bouquet of roses and orchids was that the bride gave us a photo of her late Mum and we incorporated it into the bouquet.

And the photographer, Michal Kreisch of Global Photography did a wonderful job.

White Wedding Bouquet with tight David Austin roses

White posy bouquet inspired by Kate's bouquet

Kate inspired white posy bouquet

 This posy wedding bouquet is inspired by Kate’s trail bouquet.  It features tight David Austin roses and buds, lily of the valley and hyacinth florets

In Australia, lily of the valley has a very short season.  Piris is a good substitute, particularly in vintage style bouquets.

This bouquet is particularly fragrant with the David Austin roses and lily of the valley.

Modern native bouquet with roses and lily of the valley

I was thrilled to bits with this bouquet – our bride, Milena wanted a rustic bouquet with a slight hint of yellow in the roses.
My luck was in when I was buying the flowers – found perfect white warath, flowering gum, andromeda (piris), white roses with a creamy yellow centre, and to finish it off, lily of the valley.  As you can see, it all worked beautifully and Milena loved it.
